I review the origin and properties of electromagnetic fields produced in heavy-ion collisions. The field strength immediately after a collision is proportional to the collision energy and reaches ~ at RHIC and ~ at LHC. I demonstrate by explicit analytical calculation that after dropping by about one-two orders of magnitude during the first fm/c of plasma expansion, it freezes out and lasts for as long as quark-gluon plasma lives as a consequence of finite electrical conductivity of the plasma… 
Anisotropic flow of photons in relativistic heavy ion collisions
Electromagnetic radiations are one of the potential probes to study the initial state of the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma (QGP) produced during the collision of heavy nuclei at relativistic
Particle Yields in Heavy Ion Collisions and the Influence of Strong Magnetic Fields
It is expected that the magnetic fields in heavy ion collisions are very high. In this work, we investigate the effects of a strong magnetic field on particle ratios within a thermal model of
Magnetohydrodynamics and charge identified directed flow in heavy ion collisions
Strong magnetic fields produced in any non-central heavy ion collision are expected to affect the dynamics of the hot QCD matter produced in this collision. The magnetic field is time-dependent and
Classical Electromagnetic Fields from Quantum Sources in Heavy-Ion Collisions
Electromagnetic fields are generated in high energy nuclear collisions by spectator valence protons. These fields are traditionally computed by integrating the Maxwell equations with point sources.
Spatial distributions of magnetic field in the RHIC and LHC energy regions
Relativistic heavy-ion collisions can produce extremely strong magnetic fields in the collision regions. The spatial variation features of the magnetic fields are analyzed in detail for non-central
Initial value problem for magnetic fields in heavy ion collisions
When quark-gluon plasma emerges in the wake of a heavy-ion collision, magnetic field created by the valence charges has already permitted the entire interaction region. Evolution of this "initial"

Magnetohydrodynamics and charged currents in heavy ion collisions
Abstract The hot QCD matter produced in any heavy ion collision with a nonzero impact parameter is produced within a strong magnetic field. We study the imprint the magnetic fields produced in
Magnetic field in expanding quark-gluon plasma
Intense electromagnetic fields are created in the quark-gluon plasma by the external ultrarelativistic valence charges. The time evolution and the strength of this field are strongly affected by the

We study the synchrotron radiation of gluons by fast quarks in strong magnetic field produced by colliding relativistic heavy ions. We argue that due to high electric conductivity of plasma, the
